Editorial Reviews

"Parents grappling with questions about adolescent bipolar disorder will find all the key facts in this book: how to recognize the signs and symptoms of mania and depression, the best available treatments, and strategies for protecting family life. Written by leading authorities in the field, the book provides state-of-the-art information in a clear, supportive style. I would recommend this book highly to any family that is struggling to come to terms with this difficult disorder."--Sheri L. Johnson, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Miami

"Miklowitz and George have prepared a book of exceptional sophistication, wisdom, and clinical sensitivity; one that will be useful to parents and clinicians alike. The book draws on the most current research about the assessment and treatment of bipolar disorder in adolescents, includes copies of ready-to-use scales and materials, and illustrates how these ideas and tools are woven into interventions that are both evidence based and supportive of the unique needs of each family. The discussion of how parents can work with schools to promote academic and social success is particularly valuable. We will be using this book with families in our training clinic, and I will recommend it enthusiastically to colleagues."--Eric Youngstrom, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"Kudos to Drs. Miklowitz and George! This accessible and well-crafted guide distills 20 years of research experience to provide proven management tools to parents who face the daunting task of navigating the world of the bipolar teen."--Demitri Papolos, MD, coauthor of The Bipolar Child

"My family has walked in these shoes, and has emerged on the other side of adolescence. My child is now a happy, successful, self-sufficient young adult, thanks to the treatment approach on which this book is based. As both a parent and a professional, I will do anything I can to get this book into the hands of other families who are struggling with this illness. This is the first book on adolescent bipolar disorder that offers hope."--Kathy McBride, MS, Family Resource Specialist, Boulder Valley (Colorado) School District

"This book is filled with tips on handling--and yes, surviving--the 'perfect storm' that is adolescence with a bipolar teen. The authors have seen and heard it all! They share compassionate guidance on how parents can stay calm, keep everyone safe, and steer through the storm."--Martha Hellander, JD, Cofounder, Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation

"A treasure chest of comprehensive information, real-life stories, and practical suggestions for parenting your challenging teen supportively and effectively. This book is a wonderful resource that will improve everyday life for the whole family."--V.M., parent of a 15-year-old bipolar child


"Miklowitz draws on his extensive clinical and research background to create a thoughtful book written for the parent struggling with the journey of bipolar disorder....Filled with information...an engaging and informative tool. The authors consolidate information from many sources into an easy-to-understand narrative that introduces necessary medical jargon in a palatable way....An excellent resource for any caretaker of a child or adolescent facing bipolar disorder."--Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

"This is the only book on adolescent bipolar disorder that truly offers realistic expectations, meaningful treatment options, and clearly provides families with invaluable knowledge on their child's illness. One of the best of the year!...5 stars!"--Doody's Review Service
